Double the fun for Jessy Lanza this week as we get two new releases at once.
Firstly Lanza has just released You Never Show Your Love, a collaboration with DJ Spinn and Taso. It's a thick and syrupy-slow R&B joint full of sub-bass and Lanza's great vocals. Check it out on Spotify now.
The one I've been waiting for, however, is her new collaboration with Morgan Geist. Those in the know will be aware of both Lanza's debut album, which featured production from Junior Boy Jeremy Greenspan and the fact that Geist and Greenspan collaborated on the modern-classic Morgan Geist album Double Night Time. It therefore seems fitting to have both Lanza and Geist team up here, under the name Galleria.
The new EP features two original tracks (both can be previewed below) together with a dub of each. Calling Card is an 80s body-music influenced electro track and a classic demonstration of the sort of thing that makes Geist so great. Mezzanine is a more soulful track that sits more naturally within Lanza's existing catalogue. Expect warm synths and minimal R&B production. Both are excellent. You can grab the EP, out on Geist's Environ label, from iTunes here.
